Books on Walking and Hiking Trails in Italy

Walking Italy
Gillian and John Souter
New Holland 2002
ISBN 1-56656-453-0

The authors include city walks (20) as well as country walks and hikes (30). Plenty of very good photographs, simple but adequate maps and detailed instructions. They give three main walks for Chianti, including one of 18.5 km starting in Greve.

Walking and eating in Tuscany and Umbria
James Lasdun & Pia Davis
Penguin Books 2005
ISBN 014024476X

This book describes all the classic Tuscan (25) and Umbrian (6) walks (emphatically walks, not hikes or treks), has clear maps and detailed itineraries, as well as connections with public transport. Places to eat (picnics and eateries) along the way are noted. Several routes in our area.

The Independent Walker's Guide to Italy
Frank Booth
Interlink Books
ISBN 1566562104

Thirty five fairly easy walks with maps and detailed itineraries - only three of these routes are anywhere near Greve. Nevertheless, a good way to choose an interesting area of Italy to visit before you set out.

Lonely Planet Walking in Italy
Sandra Bardwell, Stefano Cavedoni, Emily Coles, Helen Fairbairn, Gareth McCormack, Nick Tapp
Lonely Planet 2003
ISBN 1740592441

As with other Lonely Planet publications, this guide book emphasizes the rugged and the remote (for example, the volcano walks and the Grande Escursione Appenninica - walk the length of Italy!) There are two three-day Tuscan walks that can be broken into stages. For the serious hiker in Italy, this book is invaluable.
